Today’s Haiku (October 15, 2017)

My spirit is like the kudzu, turning over. Tossed by bad dreams, chased by orange clowns, but finding dawn at long last. Thanks, Fay, for this beautiful post.

take me with you

My spirit needs a guide to take me higher today, and Holly has the magic spell. I feel lighter just reading her words.

House of Heart

I  bend and stoop extending outward

reaching upward in search of space

but I am root-bound and so soft inside.

I need  someone to guide me.

A wild bird whose granite feathers span a pagan forest.

Take me with you above the soaring  sea hawk,

across the murmuring waves, your wings full of wind,

take me over and far beyond the lofty clouds.

Sheila Brown art “bird over the sea”
